Expert Wedding Florist
My name is Diana, your couple and event consultant for South Florals Weddings and Events since 2017. In two years, we’ve arranged for over 50 events and have been published three times! Before joining forces with SFWE, I found myself DIY-ing wedding florals for brides to help them save money from the high labor price tags. I would spend countless hours researching different flowers, greens, and fillers that would match the overall aesthetic and budget for their event. Now I apply those learnings with couples by maximizing the floral options nature provides to let their style shine at an ideal price!
